To have your non-commercial Hogansvilla area oommunity event Usted in By ANGELA BROWN If the Flint River is a place you, your fam- ily and friends go to have fun and escape from reality, you might want to get involved in helping to save it. The Flint Riverkeepers Organization will be hosting a meeting titled "The Future of the Flint River" on Tuesday, Aug. 19 at 7 p.m. at the Pike County Auditorium. The Flint River is the second most endan- gered river in the United States and many legislative actions will affect it in the future, the group says. The Flint Riverkeepers organization has been a watch doggroup which monitors leg- islation affecting the Flint River corridor, its waterways and tributaries. Three dams are proposed along the Flint by 2035, which the group says is going to have a huge impact. The Flint-forms the entire eastern bor- der of Meriwether. MERIWETHER COUNTY Tourism Director Sabra McCullar said Monday the Flint is a huge part of tourism not only in Meriwether County, but for the whole state. "We always have people wanting to know where good fishing places are and where they can go canoeing and kayaking," she said. McCullar says they are looking at getting some grants to make areas on the Flint River where people and picnic and rent spaces for the reunions etc. The Flint has also been a part of a tri-state water war between Georgia, Florida and Alabama. At issue is how to fairly share water from two river basins - the Apalachicola- Chattahoochee-Flint and Alabama - Coosa- Tallapoosa - that begin in Georgia. Its been called a water resource tug of war that earned the Flint the undesirable title of 'America's Second Most endangered River.' The Flint was once a water-rich and full for much of the year, a fact that attracted developers, municipalities, power companies, farms and nature enthusiasts to its shores - all of which now vie for water rights. According to concerned citizen Anna Evans, the Flint only recovers about 60 per- cent of its water due to the fact that Griffin is selling the water to Newnan- which returns it to the Chattahoochee, not the Flint. NO SMALL LANDMARK- The Flint, which originates as runoff from the runways of Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, also serves.as the eastern boundary for Meriwether. it just a red dirt driveway that winds through a forest of sweet gums, oaks, pines and beech trees? Gordon Rogers, Executive Director of the Flint Riverkeepers Organization will be speaking at the meeting on Aug. 19 to let everyone know what is threatening the Flint and how you can become more active in pro- tecting the river, water source and its scenic beauty. The Pike County Auditorium is located on Hwy 19 South, approximately one mile south of downtown Zebulon. Everyone is encouraged to attend and help save this beautiful river. The mission of the Flint Riverkeeper (FRk) is to restore and preserve the habitat, water quality, and flow of the Flint River for the benefit of current and future generations and dependent wildlife.
